Floyd Mayweather claims to have cashed in on UConn’s NCAA win

- April 8th, 2014

Frequent gambler Floyd Mayweather claims the Connecticut Huskies won him $75,636 dollars on their march to Monday night’s NCAA basketball title.

The boxing champ is known for placing big bets and tweeted a photo early Tuesday morning displaying his winning tickets.

According to the game slips the 37-year-old tweeted, UConn’s halftime lead over the Florida Gators Saturday night won him $33,636.35 on a $37,000 bet.

UConn’s 60-54 win over Kentucky in the NCAA final Monday night earned him an additional $42,000 on a $30,000 bet.

A report from Grantland.com indicated Mayweather tweeted out 46 winning betting slips between Aug. 2010 and Feb. 2012, totalling close to $4 million.

Rumours swirled during February’s Super Bowl that Mayweather had placed a $10 million bet on the Denver Broncos.

Those rumours were proven to be false.
